4:31 am
of more people, not just doctors but average people as well. it's controversial. you are about to see the incredible video showing how it might work. what you are looking at is pretty shocking. a heroin addict overdosing. her name is liz. she has been using drugs since she was 11. today she is 29. adam and louise were both with her that night in august, and they both volunteered with a program that provides clean needles and other assistance to addic addicts. >> she seemed to be pretty unresponsive and we were noticing blueing of the lips and lack of oxygen and her breathing became shallow. >> once they were not breathing and you give them breath and at that time i usually administer
4:32 am
this. >> watch what happens next. >> it can reverse an overdose from heroin, from other drugs, like oxycodone. another sturpbl rub and another shot of tphaur can. finally, liz begins to come to. >> liz? are you okay? you went out. we give you mouth to mouth recess taeugs, and we have given you tphaur cam, and you overdosed. can you sit up? >> yeah. >> when somebody takes heroin, the drug locks on to
4:33 am
reseptemberers in the brain. this can free up those and essentially bring you back to life. you might wonder, that video of liz, is that real? we showed it to four emergency room doctors, and they said yes. >> i can't believe somebody cared about me enough or loved me enough to bring me back. >> back to right of life that somehow went wrong. we met liz on the day she checked in to rehab, packing up her things and taking another look at the album of her 19-month-old daughter. >> i felt disassociated from my daughter, because i felt like basically like i was not good enough to take care of her. i can't finish school. i can't hold down a job. i can't, you know, do any of this, like, normal stuff that everyday people have absolutely
4:34 am
no problem, like it's not a challenge for them. >> it gave her a second chance. it also gave this woman a second chance. she remembers she found her son face down in the front yard. >> my husband started the breathing, and i went in and got the naloxone here. as soon as it got into his tphau strulz, he started to stir and came to. >> it's districted as part of massachusetts pilot prevention program. and this is the medical director. >> initially this program was targeted toward high risk
4:35 am
injection drug users. we started to hear about parents going to needle exchanges. >> and first responders and learn to cope, it's a support group for parents of addicts. linda has been learning to cope meetings for the last five years. >> the overdose reversal antidote is available weekly at all meetings. if you are in this room, you should have tphaur cam. >> they have managed to reverse at least nine overdoses. >> changing of the lips, fingernails, if you can't arouse them -- >> it's ready to administer. it will go up one nostril. >> it's one of those things you can't believe that you are signing up for this, but the reality is, if you have an addict, you should have this.
4:36 am
>> in the united states, overdoses kill more people than car accidents, and since 1990 prescription overdoses have more than tripled. >> it makes sense to co-prescribe this with pain medication, so people can have it and instruct their family members how to use it, so if somebody is overdosing, they can administer it to them while they wait for help to arrive, just as you would an epipen. >> but it won't always work? >> it requires for people to understand that the medications last longer, and the medications may be more potent than the individuals anticipate. the absolute need to call ni911 has to be made clear. >> as a parent, linda knows what it's like to want to save your
4:37 am
child. >> you must have it if you have an addict. you must. absolutely. because the whole trick of it is to keep them alive until they finally get it. >> you might have noticed that none of the people called 911. i will tell you, i think that's a terrible oversight. if you see that somebody is unconscious, you need to immediately call for help before you jump in. keep that in mind. many doctors think it might give addicts and friends and family a false sense of security as well, and it could be a life safer, but these are some issues. what you need to know to prevent being zapped with any big surprises. so clinically proven dermatologists recommend it twice as much as any other brand? neutrogena®. recommended by dermatologists 2 times more

4:42 am
they need to be covered and the policies may not have prescription drug coverage or doctor visits, and the new policies that are being sold have to offer that stuff. >> they offer protections on not being covered for preconditions. >> yeah. >> when you hear these stories like men being asked to buy maternity coverage, for example, it's a great headline. >> right. >> can you talk about the idea of individual versus group insurance with risks? >> the whole idea of insurance is that you pool the risk of all kind of health care you need, from maternity to hospice care, and that's what medicare and medicaid does and group insurance and the only group that has not had that is people in the individual market, and this gives them the same
4:43 am
comprehensive coverage everybody else has. >> if you didn't do that, then women when they become pregnant would suddenly have to pay more, and that's -- everybody would think that would be ridiculous, too. >> that's the situation we have now. people may not realize but in 25 states right now, you cannot buy an individual policy with maternity coverage, period, you have to pay for it out of your own pocket and nobody thinks that's a great idea. >> as a father of three kids we saw and heard about that. these consumers getting these cancelation notices and their bottom line is i am being forced to buy something that is more expensive and that's different than what i heard and it's different than what i thought i would get? >> what these policies are are policies they bought at some point after the health reform law was passed in 2010, and people with policies older than that can keep them, and they may not want to because they are probably getting pretty expensive. what these people need to understand is you don't have to buy what the insurance company wants to give you, in fact, i
4:44 am
don't think you should. you need to go to your state marketplace and look at your options, and it's very important if you just take what the insurance company gives you, you could be passing up thousands of dollars of subsidies and help with cost sharing. >> i think it's a very important point. you may get a recommendation for which plan to immediately sign up for, and it's worth taking the extra beat and visiting the website like yours and doing the homework. >> yeah, we have a website that we created at consumer reports and run through a simple series of questions and you will see if you are eligible for the subsidies, and then you can go to your state marketplace and you may be able to get -- in fact, you probably will be able to get coverage cheaper than what your insurance company wanted to sell you. >> a lot of people say the marketplace is not something i am worried about or thinking about, what does it mean for people who have insurance

daniel lieberman who is a harvard professor says human beings were made for this. he has a new book out called "the story of the human body," and he says anybody can learn to run faster with less effort. >> the question really was how did people hunt before the technology, such as the bow and arrow, and we think our ancesto ancestors could run faster. this is a treadmill that has a plate built into it, so it's a fancy scale that measures forces in dimension, and each marker is reflecting light that hits it and bounces it back to the camera, and we put together a picture of his buddy. so beau is running in a way a
4:50 am
lot of people run, and he is leaning at the waist. most evidence suggests this is not a good way to run. when he hits the ground, there's an impact feed, and there's a rapid rate of rise so the first peak, that's the impact peak, and that's the body slamming into >> beau is not running with natural form or good form. he's got good poise tour and maybe a lean but at the ankle and not hips and running with a high pace, about 170 to 180 steps a minute. this is what happens when he runs at a faster pace that you can see. that first one is more gradual. and we're here with professor dan. a nice day in the park. >> high pleasure.

>> i'm fascinate. look at my stride and i'll come back and we'll talk about it. >> sounds great. >> all right. >> two cameras were on me so maybe that wasn't my exact gate. >> you run typically for most americans. >> that doesn't sound good. >> good poise tour but there is two things you could benefit from and the first is your cadence, the rate at which you use your legs, step frequency. >> let get an idea with cadence. the metro noep. >> this is a great thing for runners to get that tells you frequency and you're running at 155 steps a minute. >> that's too slow. >> that's common. you want to be up to 170 to 180. what that does is make you less likely to over stride is your
4:52 am
ankle is less likely to land in front of the knee. >> because not reaching. >> what that does for every action is equal opposite reaction. if you hit the ground with your foot going forward, the ground will push you back and slow down. >> you're hitting the brakes. >> you have to put more effort to reaccelerate your body after it decelerates. secondly, when you hit out in front, your knee will be more straight and ankle will be pointed upward and you stiffen your leg and you hit the ground harder. so by having -- >> quietly. >> running quietly is really important. the three key elements, god posture. don't lean at the hip -- a lot of people lean had the tip. >> going uphill or an advantage. >> you might want to lead with your ankle anywhere, you're about to lean forward but do it
4:53 am
with your ankle. so running is like kissing, right? >> you barefoot run. >> i love to barefoot run. >> a lot of people say this is a fad. you study the way we evolve and what happens to your body when we run. >> if it's a fad, it's a 2 million a year fad. we've been running for millions of years and shoes have been invented recently. most on us grew up wearing shoes and don't have the strength in our feet and calf muscles aren't strong. if you wear shoes your whole life and all of a sudden take your shoes off and become bare food, you'll get hurt. you got to go slow and try it gradually and cautiously. >> principles, quicker cadence, run quietly and don't every extend, those apply barefoot running. >> i think it's more important barefoot running. if you land on your heel and you want a shoe like this which has a lot of cushioning will protect
4:54 am
you from the high forces that occur. >> so if you're coming down a hill. >> yes. >> what matters most is how you run, not the shoes. our soldiers run in boots. you can run in anything. >> if your ready to run, bike and swim, not necessarily in that order, time to get your trion with us. you may make excuses and make excuses, stop doing it. instead log on in addition. you can be well on your way to a new and better you. good luck. want to see you. a check of the top stories minutes away but up next, sleep your way to better health. r con. i don't miss out... you sat out most of our game yesterday! asthma doesn't affect my job... you were out sick last week. my asthma doesn't bother my family... you coughed all through our date night! i hardly use my rescue inhaler at all. what did you say? how about - every day?

you know, as the weather cools down, things tend to heat up statistically speaking, in the bedroom. more children will be conceived next month than any month of the year. if you plan to expand your family, you may want to pay attention to this next study. they found a relationship between diet and male fertility to quality of a man's sperm. what they found was processed meats like bacon and hamburgers appear to be a lower percent of well-shaped sperm and men that eat dark meat like fish and salmon had more normal shaped
4:59 am
sperm. it's fascinating stuff and none of this frankly should be that surprising when i looked at the study. it's saying diet can affect your reproductive health. we've known that but keep in mind researchers only look what is known as associations, not causes. that's to say men who eat more processed meat and less fish could just have an unhealthier die it overall and that could contribute to all of this. you know, daylight saving time comes to an end this weekend and that means it's time to fall back. you remember that, snag an extra hour of sleep. sleep, we talk about this quite a bit but one way to think about it is that it sort of cleans the brain of toxins that can build up during waking hours. there was a new study in fact, remarkable images, showed that brain cells, kind of shrink during sleep and because of that, that better helps say
